Spring? Spring?

It was eighty degrees earlier. The air is like velvet. The Virginia bluebells that I forgot I had planted have come up and the oakleaf hydrangeas are unfurling their leaves. Even the Aruncus is up, and the pawpaw is covered in dozens of tight flowerbuds.

God help me, I think it may be spring.

I've planted beans and nasturtiums. I am going off to Texas next week to birdwatch en masse with friends, and when I come back, it will be time to plant tomatoes and basil and--lord willing--things will be more than little green clumps, and the garden will look more like a garden and less like a desert of dead oak leaves.
